Sonja Livingston, author of the award-winning memoir “Ghostbread,” will visit the St. Bonaventure University campus Monday, Oct. 15. Livingston will read and discuss her work at 5 p.m. in the auditorium of the William F. Walsh Science Center. The event is open and free to the public.
As one reviewer wrote, “‘Ghostbread’ takes its readers through a childhood scarred by poverty and graced by love.” Livingston, who divides her time between Memphis and Western New York, won the Association of Writers and Writing Programs Award for Creative Nonfiction for “Ghostbread.”
While on campus, Livingston will also visit a Social Work class. Her visit is sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences, the Honors program, and the departments of Modern Languages and Sociology.
